Home sales, prices in Hamilton up again in November
Home sales were up again in November, new numbers from the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington show.
It was the second-highest November for residential sales in ten years, Realtors Association CEO Russ Godsoe said.
There were slightly more homes sold in November (1,096 sales) than sold in November 2013 (1,077 sales). Sales were also up compared to October and September. Godsoe proclaimed the "sellers' market" is continuing in Hamilton and Burlington.
